Seems like these are the top picks. Am I missing anything?

Does Vizio have a 60-65" LED thats non 3D for cheaper?

$1350 - Samsung UN60EH6000 60-Inch 1080p 120Hz LED
$1200 - Sharp LC-60LE600U - AQUOS - 60" Class - LED - 1080p - 120Hz

Thoughts? Where do you go between these two? Any options that I missed?

Sharp's 640 series 60" often sells for 1399, has 4 HDMI vs 2 for the Samsung, Smart features with built-in WiFi vs none for Samsung.

Primary concern is large size, good quality.

I can have all the HDMI put into one input if I just hook all my external components to a single receiver.

So again, large size, high quality image. Don't care about apps, 3D, HDMI, or anything else.

Just PRICE, PICTURE QUALITY, SIZE.

You might want to look at the LG 60LS5700. It's $1699 on Amazon now, but it was $1399 over Labor Day weekend.

If you want 2d PQ you should want a 3d TV. But if you don't want a 3d TV you don't care for PQ

I don't know if one can generalize as such. There was a CNET review on Vizio TV that had a decent 3D performance but poor 2D picture. 3D capability doesn't necessarily translate into 2D quality.

I've had the Sharp LC-60LE600U for a few days. The picture looks great to me, but I don't have any calibration equipment. The audio is not good at all, but if you're using a surround sound system 100% of the time that's not a concern. Unless you have the same issue that I have where the optical out doesn't work properly (see other post). I'm still trying to determine if it's a software bug or an issue with my TV, but I'm seriously considering exchanging it for the LC-60LE640U which is also currently under $1700 at all major retailers. The 640 model has smart TV features and built-in wifi, which I don't care about, but the 600 model has stripped down settings and seems to be a little too budget for my taste.

EDIT: Sharp said there is no fix for the issue with the optical audio output. So the built-in speakers are terrible and the only audio output doesn't work. Unless you plan to route all of your sources through a surround sound system, do not waste your time with the LC-60LE600U.

Sharp 60LE640U is a way to go. 600 is the value version, you'll get what you pay for. 60LE640U is $1399 pretty much everywhere
